Vessel_ Use & Expression

<Vessel : Use & Expression> showcases vessels which focus on craftsmanship under the subject of "functionally" and vessels making new approaches at the border of "Use" and "expression". Fifty prize-winning works are shown including Human Bowl Face by Philippe Barde (Grand Prize, 2005), a powerful and expressive series of porcelain bowls that deconstructed a vessel in a very simple but revolutionary manner, and The Architectural Volume by Bodil Manz (Grand Prize, 2007), who expressed 3-dimentional architectural drawing on the surface of ten vessels using the transparency of ceramics.

Object_ Symbol & Metaphor

<Object : Symbol & Metaphor> features objets which extended the territory of 'clay' to an expressive medium. This section shows works which express the intentions of artists "symbolically" or "metaphorically" through their forms and ceramic sculptures which explore the properties inherent to clay.
Healing Being by Lawson Oyekan (Grand Prize, 2001), which expresses properties of terra cotta metaphorically by compressing the weight of life, Afred Summer by Sun-koo Yuh, which tells about human life with stories and legends, and Heavenly Thought by Tetsuya Yamada, which symbolizes nature and skyscrapers of many global cities, are presented along with some 40 other ceramic sculptures.
